Prime Minister Allen Chastanet will be part of discussions at the Spring Meetings of the World Bank Group (Bank) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in Washington, D.C. this week.

The annual meetings bring together central bankers, Ministers for Finance and Development, private sector executives, and academics to discuss issues of global concern, including the world economic outlook, poverty eradication, economic development and aid effectiveness.

The meetings are also an important opportunity for raising the collective voice of developing nations on the issue of climate change and promised financing from developed countries to tackle the issue.

In the Prime Minister’s absence, Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries, Physical Planning, Natural Resources and Co-operatives, Ezechiel Joseph, will serve as acting Prime Minister.
